    Forcing elevated ISO for evaluation. 1st shot is ISO 6400. The 2nd is ISO 32,000.

    No to shabby, for a "sub $900" body.

    This one was in my back yard. I was listening to so Northern Cardinal chatter & waiting for one to pop out & look up as this guy flew over. I literally pulled up, focused, & shot - in about 2 seconds.

    The diminutive Z50 got the shot. BTW - The Z50 with 500PF attached is ridiculously light & maneuverable.

    Thank you Mike, and the same right back to ya.

    I assume you figured out a couple of the things you mentioned earlier...???...

    1) Sleep time out too fast. In c3 Power off delay, I set the "Standby Timer" to 5 minutes. I learned this with my Z6.
    2) I forget your wording, but it had to do with going between LiveView display & the EVF as I recall. You can use the flush button at the top left (on the back, left of the EVF) to select your preference. The button provides 3 options: 1 - "Monitor Only" (LiveView), 2 - "Auto Switch" will use LiveView unless it senses your eye at the EVF, 3 - EFV only.

    "For me", EVF only is best 90% of the time.

    I also learned from my Z7 (sold) and Z6 that setting "Airplane Mode" to ON, will significantly improve batter life.

    Quick, funny story.

    When I picked up the Z50, my local camera store did not yet have any spare EN-EL25 batteries for the Z50. As such, I was relegated to one battery.

    This past weekend, I checked and the had some in stock. Wifey & I went to the camera store and the local Nikon Rep was there. I took that opportunity to chat with him for about 20 minutes, sharing some of my observations, a few shots from the trip, and "ideas" (continued AF performance improvements, ability to assign AF-On + AF Area mode to additional buttons, etc.) so he could share it with the mothership (just to make sure they continue to hear it).

    When I was done chatting & was about ready to check out with my two additional EN-EL25 batteries, Wifey strolls up with another Z50 (body only, as they offered to pull the kit lens) for herself! What can a guy say to that?

    Now she has a Z50 too.

    Without any doubt you show the advantage of good lenses in those images, at the moment ime loving mine and thinking of parting with the rest of my m4/3 gear.
